Diflucan for fungal infection

Common Questions and Answers about Diflucan for fungal infection


Avatar f tn I have had 17 prescriptions for Diflucan in the past two years. Each time I take the prescription the symptoms go away for the duration of the treatment (8 days) then the symptoms come back within 3 days after stopping the medication. I get Thrush. The last few times my symptoms have gotten worse after each prescription. My lips are dry and cracking, my tougn is whit and cracked. Even my eyes are getting blurry.
Avatar n tn It is not as bad as before when I could barely stand, but it is still there, and the fact that the pain is still there means I still have a fungal infection. Recently, my doctor said I have a candida infection, and gave me Diflucan (flucanozole) to take for 10 days. I just finished it and there was no apparent effect. Now, I'm not so sure it is a fungal infection. Urine and blood analyses done back in August showed no bacteria in the blood or urine. Could it still be a bacterial infection?
Avatar f tn was found during my annual) and my dr (who is new and i do not normally see) prescribed me diflucan for 12 weeks, one pill, once a week. I have never heard of this or treated a yeast infection with diflucan like this before and am starting to think this doctor I saw was a quack/slave to drug company kind of doctor. Has anyone ever been prescribed diflucan this way?
Avatar n tn after 3 months of treatment Dr have inserted ear tubes.Given diflucan syrup for 15 days.But still the problem continues.What are the other possibble treatment options?What are the complications of fungal ear infection?Is ther any chances to invade the infection to brain?
Avatar f tn How does one get to the RIGHT doctor for an undiagnosed systemic fungal infection? I have a working Immune System and no other illness and I believe I have been misdiagnosed for 26 years with seasonal allergies and sinus infections. I can't even get a doctor to give me a scan because all of my tests appear so healthy. I feel very seriously ill and I am basically bedridden for the past 10 years. For 9 months now I have been trying to get help with this- but my Blood Fungal Test came up negative.

Avatar n tn When they peel, the skin beneath is red and sore and seemes fissured with little wrinkles. I assumed a fungal infection and have been using lamisil for a week with no marked results. It usually starts on the sides of the finger and spreads around up to the nail (but not under the nail, and also around to the pad of the finger. It can be painful at times, and not so at others. This also happened a couple of years ago and persisted for months untreated, and then eventually went away. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn email me at ***@**** i'd like to know how they tested you for the fungal infection in your nose/sinus cause i might have the same problem
Avatar m tn Of course antibiotics don't work on yeast or other fungi. You need anti fungal medication for fungi. There are fungi that can be invasive. You need to be able to get a culture of it and see if it is the source of the problem. What tests or have they seen fungi in the prostate?
Avatar f tn How I got rid of Fungal Ear infection for good! I had a fungal infection in one ear for a while and after many visits to the GP and lots of ear syringing and different kinds of ear drops i was out of options as nothing was working. My ear was so painful and it's all i could think about. I could bearly hear and my balance was very off. I decided to take matters into my own hands and started using white vinegar.
Avatar n tn When I do a search on Internet, it seems Diflucan is meant for women. Do men take Diflucan? Appreciate your advice please. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Every time I take a natural anti-fungal supplement I get sick and I don't get better at all. My only treatment that I have found is Diflucan 150mg daily for at least 2 weeks, but I'm worried since my liver enzymes are extremely high. Should I take Diflucan and have my liver blood tests every 2-3 days?
Avatar n tn My last biopsy (2 years ago) showed stage 1 liver disease and no obvious deterioration from 10 years earlier. I have declined treatment. I have suffered with a worsening fungal toe nail infection for at least 15 years. I was cautioned against oral treatment some years ago by my GP. In the last year the condition has worsened and has affected all the toe nails on the left foot and my big toe nail on the right foot.
Avatar m tn Please Help me. i had red, itchy, swell penis forehead last year & i gone to doctor and he tested me for HIV 1&2 antibodies, VDRL, HERPES simplex virus 1&2 IGG-IGM & TSH and all test came normal (negative). Then my doc told me that it is candidal balanoposthitis & he gave me fusidic acid cream with terbinafine cream and some tablets for infection & infection cured 70% but itching never gone.
Avatar n tn After unprotected sex with F that had yeast infection, was tested for STD (visually), then applied creams (Miconazole, Lotramin, Cortizone) and pill (Diflucan), over the course of 2 months. Every time the symptoms would diminish to virtually nothing, just to re-appear with sexual activity/friction/masturbation. In the case of Masturbation, my hand would have a mild, but annoying breakout of rash, similar to Ringworm. Does this type of spreading imply a Fungal infection ???
Avatar n tn You can wash your clothes in germicidal detergents for this purpose. Treatment of fungal infections involves topical and oral antifungal medicines. Most cases of fungal infections respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine,ketaconazole and clotrimazole.You can consult a pharmacist and get any cream or lotion containing these ingredients. Some of them are Lamisil, Monistat derm, Mycelex, and Nizoral.
Avatar n tn It only occurred shortly after unprotected sex with a female. Did full sti testing. Doctor said it looked like a fungal infection or yeast, gave me some cream which did very little for a few weeks. Went to family doctor and was given hydrocortisone (sp) and diflucan tablet and it is now gone completely. Should I be worried about this rash? Could be fungal intertrigo? How common is this?
Avatar m tn I was also told that there's nothing on my skin to make the fungal scrapings from — is there any way to find out the family of the fungal infection that I'm possibly having?
Avatar m tn is there an antibiotic that I should take for it like a sulfa or anti fungal diflucan?
Avatar m tn Hi there! Well, it is a good medication for fighting fungal infection; however the infection would need to be conformed first before you can be given the medication. I would suggest discussing this with your allergist, since it was his/ her primary opinion. Hope this helps. Take care!
12182312 tn?1427687556 If it doesn't, I'd see your doctor for follow up. You are under doctor's care for the fungal infection, so continue that path rather than self medicating. I would try some probiotic yogurt to help though---- I eat Dannon Activia. I believe it helps.
Avatar f tn Im on my last day of a 3day cream for yeast infection and why havnt I had any relief?
Avatar f tn doxycycline, bactrim, netronizazol and ciprofloxacin; they also prescribed me diflucan to make sire it wasn't a yeast infection at first... I had this same infection a while back and they had me on an antibiotic that I took 6 times a day for 10 days but I can't remember what it was. So I am stuck, please help me! I am allergic to penicillin and everything in that family.
Avatar m tn A few possibilities of your rash are fungal infection or balanitis. Don’t use any cosmetics on the penis; instead you may use some topical antimicrobials like Bacitracin or Lotrimin. Avoid intercourse and masturbation till there is complete healing.Control your blood sugar. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult a dermatologist or your doctor. I sincerely hope it helps. Take care and please keep me posted on how you are doing. Warm regards!
Avatar f tn Hi! Yes, yeast can and does cause a rash and itching/burning sensation. Typically the areas affected are the groin area and under the breasts. Sometimes under the belly if there is a bit of extra "fluff". Nystatin powder of Tegretol shampoo can work very well in these areas. Diflucan is a great drug for treating yeast that's "everywhere". Colonoscopy won't cause yeast or GI problems, but is often done because of pre-existing GI problems. Hope this helps!
1142929 tn?1271626435 I'm wondering if my skin has just not healed properly, so it's causing more susceptibility for infection. Any recommendations for healing the skin better? Could any irritation be due to HPV warts? I have a little bump on where I had a hymen almost, but the doctor didn't think it was an std, just like a change in skin. It doesn't hurt, and it's just one. Mostly it's just my entire area like opening and back that is dry and sometimes burns, sometimes itches.
Avatar f tn I have been scoped more times than I can count, The final fungal culture came back positive for Alternaria. I have been on Diflucan, Amphoceterin/saline spray, as well as several other antibiotic nasal sprays. I am still fighting the symptoms which can be excruciating at times. It feels like my sinuses are on fire. When I go to the doctor, my sinuses are raw and he has video of the mold colonizing in my nose. So far it is in the sinuses.
Avatar m tn I have been tested after each outbreak and have come back negative for all STDs, including 4 times for herpes. Could I have a candida albicans infection? I heard genital warts are not usually painful, whereas the bumps I have had are usually VERY painful. Should I ask my doctor if I could try Diflucan? Thanks for any advice.
Avatar n tn My doctor gave me a cream about two months ago and helped but i came back and the cream i have now i have been using more 3 days and it has helped a little i think but hasnt cleared it up completely yet. I didnt start having the problems right after i received the oral sex. I started having the problems after i got really sick from some kind of food poisoning this summer about 2 or 3 months ago.
